Yay tall boy can, but not date on an IPA.
Pours a small head, nice that it didn't foam too much out of the can as many canned ipas do, but what a poor head for a canned ipa, light bubbly head with touch of lacing, hazy bright carrot orange color.
Nose has mild hops, a little spicy chewy hop, very herbal and medicinal plastic like vegetal hop, maybe a state hop?, a weird broccoli like vegetal aroma, not so nice, I really don't like smelling this. Mild grassy hop, as well as a light grainy malt. A mild juicy fruit component too which seems like what they were initially going for but Ug.
Taste starts with spicy hops, little chewy like, quite bitter, mild citrus and hint of fruit. Then some sweet malt, little candy and caramel malt, malts attempt to balance the big hop bitterness but falls short a little as the hops get borderline astringent. Hops turn a little herbal and vegetal like oily almost rancid oil. Fairly juicy and bitter, much better taste than the aroma. Finish is drier and astringent, little spicy hop and briny, light caramel malt residue too.
Mouth is med bod, little sticky, lower carb.
Well, this falls quite short. Missed a lot of what it tried to do, and some off flavors and poor aroma, mostly seems like poor hops, but also severely lacking carbonation and head. Not a good beer at all.

Ale pours a cloudy yellow tinged amber with fluffy white head that dies down to thin foam layer with nice lacing and some sediment floating in there....very different for a canned beer. Nose is malty with a citrusy lemon and orange waft mingling in with spicy hops. Taste is up front bittering hops, orange and lemon characteristics on the back with a white pepper like aftertaste playing around a light sweet malt characteristic. Moderate carbonation on the moutfeel makes it pleasurable, yet not that balanced or well rounded at all. Not the most memorable of the Finch's brand, decent, but would not go out of my way to find it again.
